Public lecture: ‘Asylum for Containment: EU arrangements with Niger, Serbia, Tunisia and Turkey’


Since 2015, Europe has intensified its cooperation with third countries in the field of asylum and migration. The Asylum for Containment report synthesises four country studies concerning European political, legal and financial instruments in this field in Niger, Serbia, Tunisia and Turkey. These very different case studies allow for the identification of fundamental challenges of European external asylum and migration policy.

Thomas Spijkerboer is professor of Migration Law at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. For more info see
